The 2012-13 bowl season is upon us. College football's postseason concludes with a BCS National Championship Game bout between two of the sport's most storied programs, as No. 1 Notre Dame faces No. 2 Alabama in Miami on Monday, Jan. 7, 2013.

But there's plenty of action to enjoy before then. Surprising Florida battles former defensive coordinator Charlie Strong and his Louisville team in the Sugar Bowl on Wednesday, Jan. 2. Oregon and Kansas State, two championship contenders in their own right, meet in the Fiesta Bowl on Thursday, Jan. 3. Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel leads Texas A&M against former Big 12 rival Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl on Friday, Jan. 4.
